Sandy Springs sets meeting on Mount Vernon path

Sandy Springs has called a “community input meeting” and public information open house to talk about plans for the Mount Vernon Highway Multi-Use Path.

The meeting is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, at Sandy Springs City Hall, 1 Galambos Way. The Mount Vernon Corridor Project runs from the Sandy Springs MARTA Station to Vernon Woods Drive, a distance of about 1.5 miles.

Plans call for a multi-use path 10 to 12 feet wide, 6-foot sidewalks, landscaping, buffers and a center turn lane, officials said. Safety and operational improvements are proposed at existing, signalized intersections.

The path also would provide connectivity to proposed multi-use paths on Peachtree Dunwoody Road and the Path 400 Trail, officials said.

“The meeting provides the community the change to review proposed concepts, ask questions and provide input,” according to a meeting announcement. “There will be a presentation with a short question-and-answer period, followed by the open house.”
